We're a small, family-owned business with dedicated craftsmen who love to make beautiful things.
You’ll spark conversation (and envy, and school rivalry) for years to come with quality, custom steel grates and home decor from Gridiron Metal Works.
Indiana native Derrick Dilts —
the son of a craftsman — fell in love with creating things at an early age.
He and his wife, Emily, started Gridiron Metal Works as a fun outlet for the occasional project and a way to teach their kids about building and design. Today, it’s the way we share our love of quality craftsmanship with others.
Gridiron Metal Works started with a Christmas present.
A bench with a heavy rust patina and worn, barnwood planking for a seat was given as a gift. That present turned into a conversation, which turned into more benches, and then planters and then,… well, here we are.
We make every piece to order by combining professional design with state-of-the-art CNC lasers and cutting-edge manufacturing processes. We’ll work with you to create gorgeous, custom pieces for your home, office, backyard, and patio that will last for years — and make you the envy of the neighborhood or guy or gal three cubicles down.
Look around. We’re glad you’re here.
You’ll have the best-looking grill or home decor in the neighborhood!
